I guess some of you were also subscribed to GCN+. What do you think on the closure? For people outside Germany, can you look at the Discovery+ pricing in your country and tell me what plans there are for how much? I have the suspicion that we are ripped off here and that’s why I will not subsribe for now.
Cannot really be bothered by it. Since I barely watch pro cycling races (Belgium can be watched here, and they broadcast more than the Dutch if I really want to see something). It was fun to binge a few documentaries from Mark Beaumont, but honestly I like the self-produced endeavours from for example Buzz Along Cycling much more.
It comes closer to self-sufficiency. And yes, the camera work is not that great. That being said, it feels more relatable than seeing paid cyclist suffer with a van in their bag picking them up when things get out of hand.
So yeah, sorry but not sorry for me.
From the looks of it in the UK Standard is 6.99 per month and includes all cycling Grand tours and other stuff from Eurosport. Then for £29.99 per month you get premium which includes TNT Sports. I think we just have the basic subscription so don’t get any sports @ £3.99 so for £3 more I could get the Grand Tours.
However while I was subscribed to GCN+ it was really more for the documents as I don’t really much enjoy their coverage of the cycling. I did think at first it was a lot especially considering I couldn’t get it on the TV without streaming from my phone. That for me was a major failure when it first came out and it took ages before we got an app for TV.
I will miss the silly documentaries. It was like cycling version of Top Gear/ The Grand Tour.
Sad times. I too thought of it as a cycling top gear
Agreed. Very sad on this. Hope they put the content on their YouTube channel.
